Curious Seed presents
'Some of the most brilliantly imaginative, humorous, touching theatre I have seen this year',
★★★★★ The Times
Chalk About was created for young audiences aged 8+ and is a playful, funny and sometimes moving look at how we see ourselves and others, featuring dance, chalk, chat and one perfect scene containing everything you could wish for…
Chalk About explores the nature of identity and asking some BIG questions. What makes us who we are? Is it where we are from? Or how we talk? Is it the way we dance? Our pasts, our futures? And, most importantly, doesn’t everyone like pizza?
'In just 50 minutes, it leads its audience deep into the stuff of human identity, using movement and dialogue to discuss family and origins, nationality and gender, happiness, sadness and the way we express ourselves through the things we like, from pizza to disco music.'
